Anorexia nervosa-like disorders--some suggestions.

Abstract

Some variants of anorexia nervosa are described. It is emphasized that disorders not leading to severe weight loss may easily be missed. The need for careful assessment in each case is stressed, particularly in view of potential physical damage and poor prognosis. The apparently high incidence of anorexia nervosa-like disorders raises issues relating to diagnosis and theory about anorexia nervosa itself, and points to the possible implication of sociocultural factors.
